On Thursday, August 7, Hyperallergic will host our next ArtTalk featuring the Yams Collective — aka HOWDOYOUSAYYAMINAFRICAN? — at their studio in Dumbo, Brooklyn. The topic for that evening’s discussion and conversation is white supremacy and repetition.
Hyperallergic was the first to break the news of the Yam Collective’s withdrawal from the 2014 Whitney Biennial back in May, and we’re eager to continue the conversation about the art world and its complicity in the institutions of white supremacy.
The evening’s ArtTalk will consist of an open studio, performances, and panel discussion with members of HOWDOSAYYAMINAFRICAN. We will explore topics that are central and important to the Yams Collective, including white supremacy, black power, and the institutions of the art world.
The discussion will feature a number of members of the Yams Collective.
Hyperallergic ArtTalk invites leading voices in the arts to join an intimate gathering of art aficionados, artists, and arts professionals to spark discussion, debate, and further action about an evolving idea or project they’re passionate about.
Please join us for this intimate event that will take place at the Yams Collective Studio (20 Jay Street, Suite 207, Dumbo, Brooklyn), 7–9pm.
Tickets ($10) for this event (including refreshments) are available below and through Eventbrite. No tickets will be sold at the door.
